Lasting ImpactRose didn't live to see the end of the war, but throughout it she gave southerners hope. The Confederate won the first battle of the Civil War, Battle of Fort Sumter, but after that they kept steady with wins, losses, and inconclusive battles. When Rose's information was key to winning The Battle Of Bull Run, she kept the Southerners spirits up, for at that point the Confederate was winning the war. If Rose was alive at the end of the Civil War, she might have made a bigger impact.

(Since Rose died before the end of the war, she assumed the South would win!)

How the Civil War Affected RoseAs a wealthy, beutiful young lady, Rose had it all! When the Civil War came up, Rose quickly sided with the Confederate. She was so set with this opinion, she went into further measures, and risked everything. just to help our country. Rose was put under house arrest, then five years of prison, and when she was realeased, she continued with spy missions! This last mission was also the cause of her death, So we honor her fo risking her life for our country, even if it wasn't for the cause most of us supported.
